- Nowadays, smart phones have converted the people's life style; convenience of the application has a big impact on all aspects of necessities. Considering that applications need to keep sensitive and private data, the trustworthiness of the application becomes a matter of concern to end users, and privacy protection is an urgent need. The current Android permission mechanism has the goal of fast, simple, and easy enforcement, so it designed to be a coarse-grained permission mechanism. In this paper, a fine-grained access control model for Android applications, which makes authorization decisions according to the permission usage behaviour and sensitive data accessed, is proposed. Furthermore, the fine-grained access control model is integrated into actual APPs through a so-called dynamic Android Application Security System (dAASS), which make use of instrumentation technology, static analysis and dynamic analysis technology. dAASS can enhance the security of Android system by fine-grained access control, permission usage tracking and security violation reminding. Performance experiment shows that deploying dAASS on Android applications takes less than 1 minute and secured applications exhibit no noticeable slowdown and Application Not Responding (ANR). dAASS can provide fine-grained real-time protection from malicious Android applications.
